Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been spotted with the rest of the Manchester United squad ahead of the match at Old Trafford vs Burnley, according to Manchester Evening News. However, this has happened previously against Manchester City in the EFL Cup, where Mkhitaryan didn’t even make the bench.
Many feel today’s match is the perfect opportunity to reintroduce last years Bundesliga Player of the Year and that the match vs City would have been an error to bring Mkhitaryan back – a repeat of his last performance against Pep Guardiola’s team. Many also have the popular belief that Mkhitaryan is the definition of a ‘confidence player’. Along with that, reports have emerged that the player actually cried when he learnt that he had been isolated from the squad, however fit he was. We doubt these premature reports are true and are of the popular belief that the Armenian will return to full form once he gets game-time.
